Chelsea star a doubt for Everton clash after picking up knee injury

Chelsea may have to play their next clash with Everton without goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, after the Belgian sustained a knee injury in training, the Daily Express report.

The 23-year-old returned from international duty without any problems, but picked up the knock in training (via Express), and now may be forced to watch the Blues from the sidelines.

The Express suggest, however, that Jose Mourinho is willing to give the Belgian every chance to prove his fitness before deciding whether to start the game at Goodison Park with either his number one, or with understudy Asmir Begovic.

The news will be a real disappointment for Mourinho, who would have been hoping to go into the game against the Toffees with his best side as they try to finally get their campaign off and running after a difficult start.

The champions have collected just one win so far this campaign, and suffered an embarrassing defeat to Crystal Palace in their final game before the international break.
